A choice of four properties offering two-bed living in Dublin.
9 Rialto Street, Rialto, D8
€295k Hunters Estate Agent (01) 493 5410
Rialto Luas stop is just around the corner from No9 Rialto Street which links the South Circular Road with James's Walk. No9 has been extended to 714 sq ft and has an open-plan ground floor, with a front-facing study in a nook with a cast-iron fireplace, a living area with another fireplace and the kitchen at the back with a skylight and sliding doors to the gravelled rear yard. A mosaic-tiled shower room is upstairs along with the two bedrooms.
6 Greenville Avenue, The Tenters, D8
€350k Allen & Jacobs (01) 210 0360
When it was built, No6 Greenville Avenue would have looked directly across the street at the great expanse of the Tenter Fields to the north. The whole area has long since been covered with housing and is now one of Dublin's time-honoured communities. No6 measures 775 sq ft and needs some modernising. Its two bedrooms are on the first floor, one with a fireplace, while the ground floor has two reception rooms (both with fireplaces) a skylit kitchen and a shower room.
14 Warren Street, Portobello, D8
€550k Felicity Fox (01) 633 4431
The last time No14 Warren Street was sold was in 2012, fetching €262,500 in November of that year. Its new owners immediately set about refurbishing, hiring interior designer Wesley O'Brien to carry out a makeover. It's now clean and bright inside, with wood floors, original fireplaces and an open-plan kitchen and dining room at the back. Double doors there lead to a front sitting room, and the two bedrooms are upstairs. The total floor area is 684 sq ft, and the owners have also upgraded the insulation to make the house C2 BER.
28 St Kevin’s Parade, Portobello, D8
€550k Owen Reilly (01) 677 7100
St Kevin's Parade features strongly in Ulysses, being the address of several Jewish friends of the Blooms. A merchant, Moses Herzog, is mentioned as living at No13, which, owing to changes of street numbering, is now No28. It's a two-storey villa-style house measuring 926 sq ft, with the two bedrooms (one ensuite) on the lower floor. There are doors from the hallway here to a decked and enclosed patio. The whole of the upper floor is given over to an open-plan living room, dining room and kitchen.
